Macarons (the original French macaroons) (Slideshow version)

Macarons (the original French macaroons)  : Photo of step #26


This recipe really is "of the moment": the success of these small, highly-coloured cakes, in an infinite variety of flavours, is impressive. It's a recipe which needs some care, in order to produce a result worthy of a professional pastrychef. No problem, I will guide you through the recipe, particularly the tricky parts.

This variety of flavours means that I test many alternatives, so don't be surprised if in the pictures the colour of the macarons changes, I used the best photograph available for each stage. You will also find a page dedicated to fillings for macarons.
